(And if not, send your want list because I probably have it and just have not put it on the website yet.)

   There are 396 pages of Worldwide Stamps listings, but they are well organized. While many dealers don't want to bother with the work of offering less expensive items, my listings run the gamut of common to scarce stamps to help fill holes in your collection.

New on 5 February 2014:

   Denmark Double Overprint Rarity: Only one Danish stamp has been added today, but it is very special indeed. It's whereabouts unknown (except to the owners) for 50+ years, this double overprint is so rare that neither the Facit or AFA catalogs place a value on it. It's history, however, has now been well-documented; it even has it's own web page hosted by a Danish expert.

   Greenland Christmas Seal Display Signs: While collecting Christmas Seals is quite popular, few collectors know about or have ever seen the point of purchase display signs used to promote them.

   Iceland I GILDI Full Sheets have the advantage that they contain all the plate varieties of the underlying stamps AND they each contain TWO 4-strips and TWO 4-blocks of all four types of the overprints.

   Norway Official Reprints: A very few Norwegian stamps have been officially reprinted: in 1914, 1924, 1955, and 1963. In each case, it was done in conjunction with a philatelic book that the post office helped to support. I have just added the complete set of 1924 reprints to the website.

New on 8 January 2014:

   U.S. discount "postage rate units" are groups of stamps that total the amount of a particular postage rate. With the U.S. domestic letter rate going to 49 cents on 26 January, this is a great time to offer 49-cent postage rate units, neatly sorted and packaged groups of NOT more than 3 stamps needed to make up the 49 cent rate, at UP TO 30% BELOW FACE VALUE.

   U.S. full sheets below face value: These are all 100% "perfect" collectible quality sheets. Each item has been carefully inspected. These are all worthy of adding to your collection. This is a great way to inexpensively add sheets to your collection; any items you don't need can be used for postage and you still save money!

   U.S. discount postage lots: In addition to the postage rate units and full sheets, I am starting to offer a variety of other groups, all at below face value.

   Several new Collection Lots, Albums, and Literature have been added.

New Printed Price Lists Available by Postal Mail  
New printed price lists of all -- and only -- the items on the website are available. The printed price lists do not include the illustrations. Due to the amount of work involved, the printed price lists are updated only every few weeks.

There are separate price lists for:

   Each Scandinavian Country:

       Aland
       Danish West Indies
       Denmark (including Slesvig)
       Faroe
       Finland (including Karelia and North Ingermanland)
       Greenland
       Iceland
       Norway (does NOT yet include all "regular" stamps)
       Sweden (does NOT yet include all "regular" stamps)

   Slania-Engraved items (also Greta Garbo)

   United States Stamps (and few covers)
   Worldwide Stamps (and a few covers). Does not include U.S. or Scandinavia.

   Scandinavian Philatelic Literature

Please only request the lists you actually need; they are very expensive to print and mail.

Please read this if you are in the U.S. or Canada or this if you are in another country. Then send an email and please specifically state if you want specific Scandinavian countries, Slania, United States, Worldwide, or Scandinavian philatelic literature price lists. (Repeated non-specific requests will probably be ignored.)

Please note that these lists only include what you see listed on this website and are provided simply as a convenience. If what you are seeking is not shown on the website, then please send your want list rather than just requesting a price list. (If it is not on the website, it won't be in the price list.) Clients who send want lists always have access to the freshest stock and new items as they come in.

For U.S. and Canadian Clients...
The first copy of printed price lists will be sent to U.S. and Canadian clients at no charge. Further updates can be sent, upon request, at no charge to those clients actively making purchases or who send want lists. Otherwise there may be a postage charge for further updates -- these lists cost several dollars each to print and mail.

For Overseas Clients...
Unfortunately, due to the large number of requests received from overseas people who seem to just collect "free price lists" -- and because a) all the information the lists contain is on this website and b) the overseas airmail postage cost is very high -- there will be a MINIMUM $10 shipping charge (payable by MasterCard, Visa, PayPal, cash, US$ check, etc.) for price lists sent to overseas addresses. A matching-amount credit voucher will be included with the price lists and will be valid only on purchases (totaling) at least five times the amount of the credit. Example: If the shipping cost is $10, you will receive a $10 credit which will be valid on a purchase of $50 or more.

Please email to inform me of the desired price lists and to learn the shipping cost for them. I will need to know exactly which price lists you wish to receive and I will need to know your COMPLETE POSTAL ADDRESS.

Once you have been informed of the shipping cost and if you wish to proceed....

To send shipping cost payment by PayPal, use the email address "paypal@JaySmith.com", use a subject of "Price List Shipping Payment" and be sure to indicate again the price lists you desire and include your complete postal address.

To send your MasterCard or Visa number, please use my secure payment website. For your security, never put a credit card number in a normal email!

To send a US$ check or cash (at your own risk), please see my postal address information.

Facit >> Scott and Scott >> Facit Catalog Number Concordances
 
To meet my own need for catalog number concordances, I have finally started publishing comprehensive catalog number concordances for the Scandinavian countries. At this moment only DWI, Greenland, and Iceland are ready (the later two only up to 1995, so far). However, I will be preparing these bidirectional catalog number concordances for all the Scandinavian countries and eventually will include the other specialized catalogs as well. Reservations are welcomed. These are very inexpensive (considering the labor required to make them) and are published loose-leaf. An attractive binder is available. I intend to update the concordances annually; subscriptions are available. Though these have only been available for a few weeks, they have been a great hit. You will find them extremely useful!  
<<< NEW >>>
Facit Specialized Catalog PAGES BY THE COUNTRY.
 
These are genuine Facit Catalog pages, not copies (of course!). They are loose pages; please be aware that there is no room for binding -- you will have to figure out for yourself how to bind or otherwise manage them. The pricing is by country. There are sometimes conflicts involving back-to-back countries, thus I am offering the pages a number of different ways to compensate for this. Supply is very limited. If you have always wanted a Facit Catalog, but could not justify it for "just one country", this is your chance -- but you must act quickly. Here is more information about the Facit Scandinavian Specialized Catalog.  
Shopping Cart System and Secure Website for Credit Card Payment  
My shopping cart system is fully functional for almost all the price list pages. The cart system will be extended to the few remaining pages very soon. I also have a secure website for secure acceptance of credit card payments. You can use this method any time you wish to send your credit card information: for placing orders, making approval payments, or for updating new issue and Stender supplement credit card information, etc. I take the privacy and security of your information very seriously -- I never share your information with anybody for any reason.  
Scandinavian Philatelic Literature, including the Scandinavian Annual Catalogs  
The web versions of my philatelic literature price lists were last updated on 30 July 2014 and are the most current. Knowledge is the key to enjoying your collection and the key to buying wisely. View the listings live on the web or download the literature price list in PDF format. Let me know If you would prefer a printed copy sent by postal mail.  
Investment Opportunity Information  
Jay Smith & Associates is offering to its clients an opportunity to invest in the company. If you might be interested in interest rates of 7% up to 16%, be sure to read the complete information and risk statement presented.
